not sure

im a little nervous about the tightness of these gloves. i got the size i usually wear a large but notice the finger length is long enough but the diameter around hand is tight... question are bike gloves suppose to fit snug? also ordered a pair for my wife and am worried they will fit the same. had to return two other pairs that didn't fit. i remain hopefull

In my experience bike gloves are tight fitting. Like bike specific attire for other parts of your body loose fitting can often result in rubbing, chaffing, and discomfort over repeated use and significant ride length. The tight glove is part of what protects your hands from developing blisters etc... Raked the yard all day this fall with a pair of work gloves that was too large and you will see what I mean...
